The answer to the question after MUCH searching and calling various folks from Lincoln to the IRS. The correct form number for these tax credit vehicles is an IRS Form 8910 not an 8936. The other interesting thing is that you cannot claim a credit that exceeds your current tax liability. So the Aviator was suppose to have a $6538 credit, my tax liability for last year is $5269. So I figured $1300 or so out the window; wrong again. They take what you had withheld, which is my case was about $4200. So since I owed about $1100, they deducted that leaving me with the $4200 out of the $6500 credit and the credits DO NOT carry over......I don't know why it doesn't qualify. It is on this list under Ford Motor Company; IRC 30D New Qualified Plug-In Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit | Internal Revenue Service
As for your VIN, try entering it on this site; https://parts.ford.com/en.html
If it still isn't recognized then perhaps that is why the vehicle isn't shown as 'qualifying' for the rebate.
I've cleaned the windshield and blades very well and it does not improve anything. I can only conclude it's crappy rubber on the blades.Hi Gang
I haven't had my new ST for 2 full weeks yet, but I have had some rain storms that show some flaws in the front wipers. It's probably just less than great wiper blades, but they have left streaks and have not flopped over to pull water from the windshield at times causing a poor wipe and some noise.
I guess it's not a deal breaker, but still surprising that I might need to replace wiper blades at less than 3 weeks of ownership.
Have any of the rest of you noticed less than stellar results with your wiper blades?

Yeah - happening with me as well. Used all the tricks to clean the glass and the blade and still have a several inch streak in the DS wiper in the middle of the path. Time for new bladesI've cleaned the windshield and blades very well and it does not improve anything. I can only conclude it's crappy rubber on the blades.
Just did a quick search and both NAPA and Auto Zone show they have them for heated and sprayer. Others might also as those where the only 2 I checked.The problem with the listed replacement blades is that they will not work on the higher end stuff such as my Aviator Hybrid which has wiper fluid pushed out of the wiper blades.
You 'gotta buy Ford or nothing......
Pretty sad that the dealer would not do it. Do you have a different dealer near by?Well I bought a new set of blades probably a year ago now, maybe the ones you found were more recently introduced. However, I could not figure out how to change them, the dealership would not do it and neither would the Grease Monkey place where I get my oil changes done as the dealership doesn't want to do those either.
